If you have seen or talked to me lately, I've mentioned these delicious maple oat scones. You must make them, pronto. End of story. The recipe is here. Need some more convincing? They are flaky, fatty, perfectly lightly sweetened with maple syrup, and the perfect excuse to have someone over for tea. That will also give you a reason not to eat the entire batch by yourself. If you're hankering for something like those adorable little maple sugar leaves, you can just cut straight to the glaze, make it a bit thicker, and eat it by the spoonful. If you're into that kind of thing. Ahem.
Can you tell by the frequency of my posting that we have a grandparent in the house? It's fantastic. I un-guiltily ran some errands by myself this morning, and it was lovely.
